    Please excuse my stupidity, but why don’t you interview them all? They all (yes, including the debianplanet crew) are persons that I’m sure have interesting things to say debian-wise. One interview a week?

    with all of the issues about the new maintainer process on debian-devel lately, i think James should interviewed about that. he is the dam and an ftp master also.

    Why is the poll closed? Although granted I don’t really have an opionon on who to try and interview (although I do have kde related questions).

    Got it. It was more than a week old, and the auto-close time was set to a week; go figure. 🙂

    Subject: One for willy
    Author: jdaily
    Date: Friday, 2002/10/25 – 02:50
    Let it be recorded that willy got the first vote, and stood at 100% of all votes for some short but glorious period of time.

    Subject: Indeed.

    willy wasn’t there in the initial revision of the poll; I added him later. I think it was Robot101 that added “DebianP^H Planet crew”.

    No I didn’t. Why would we interview ourselves? I wrote the poll initially – I had joeyh on there I’m sure. It’s a massively superficial list, we have glibc/gcc maintainers, GNOME/KDE maintainers, SPI board people, tech ctte, admin teams, etc etc. Doesn’t seem to be a very popular vote at all, really. Ho hum.

    I definitely didn’t add DP crew, and it had a 😛 at the end that I chopped off. If you want to interview a KDE maintainer[1], I can oblige, and fill two criteria. 😛

    I definitely didn’t chop joeyh off, either. Unless I’m on drugs.

    [1]: Well, co-maintainer.
